Hello everybody.  A while back I asked some questions about what to expect 
while exchanging my standard (original) transmission to a 350 automatic.  For 
those of you interested in doing this yourself, I will keep you posted, and 
you will learn many things, as I am. (like I wish I could take it someplace 
and pay to have it done).  I'm done with the easy part (taking out the 
tranny, clutch, flywheel and starter.) and now I have more questions.

1.  I have what is supposed to be a Chevy 350 transmission, however, there is 
 nothing on the transmission that indicates what it is (no numbers, no GM 
symbol) and there is no connection for a  kickdown cable.  Are there 
transmissions that don't have them?  

2. There is an electrical connection--a male plug.  What is that for?

3.  For those of you who have done this, would you recommend taking out the 
original cross member?  It does look like the automatic would barely squeak 

Thanks in advance!
